Reimbursement per the collective bargaining agreement between Kaiser Permanente and the California Nurses Association
Represented nurses in Northern California are eligible to have approved national certifications (and recertifications) reimbursed. Nurses are able to submit eligible exam expenses related to certification for reimbursement per the collective bargaining agreement between Kaiser Permanente and the California Nurses Association
Reimbursement through Tuition Reimbursement
In addition, nurses may use their National Tuition Reimbursement benefit to take certification preparation courses that provide continuing education units. This includes up to $500 in travel related to attending the preparation course.
The Northern California National Tuition Reimbursement Policy was updated in 2019 to cover eligible professional certification and re-certification fees for national certifications not required by your position.
This benefit enables all Northern California employees to seek professional certification and request reimbursement upon successful passing of a national certification exam.
Please contact National Tuition Reimbursement directly for any questions related to eligibility and reimbursement.
